Things Your Pharmacists Wish You Knew!
Pharmacists are healthcare professionals too
If your typical interaction with a pharmacist goes something like this:
“Hi, I’m here to collect my prescription” followed by “Thanks, that’s all and oh, can I also get these face masks?” you’re seriously missing out on a whole lot of knowledge your pharmacist can offer you.
In many countries around the world including Malaysia, pharmacists play a significant role in the provision of healthcare services. Also, pharmacists can make significant contributions for the betterment of the community. They’re trained to know and understand the chemistry of various drugs, how they interact with different body conditions, the contraindications of medications and more.
Pharmacists are healthcare professionals who do more than dispense prescribed medications.
To understand their point of view and the valuable services they can provide you with, we’ve reached out to four pharmacists from around Malaysia.
